Sorry for my ignorance guys but, why do you prefer Makefile rather than 
NAnt. As I see, NAnt is a good way of batch-compiling which is 
cross-platform and doesn't depend on cygwin (and BTW, it is .NET based!, 
what is better than eating own dogfood?). Many issues evolve about the 
auto-tools stuff combined with the Makefile way, above all in Windows. 
In fact, KDE development team has already begun using CMake, which 
solves auto-tools issues and makes cygwin no longer necessary...

Just some random thoughts ;)
